ALBERT LEA – Men from Mason City and Clear Lake were nabbed in a sex sting out of Albert Lea, Minnesota.
According to the Albert Lea Tribune: “Court documents state three men were arrested in a two-day operation Aug. 29 and 30 in Albert Lea after advertisements were placed in Rochester, Mason City and Mankato on Backpage and Craigslist websites with a fake person who was advertised as traveling from Chicago to Albert Lea. The men were arrested after responding to the advertisements and traveling to Albert Lea.”
Arrested was David Bird of Mason City and Scott Green of Clear Lake, along with a man from Waseca, Minnesota.
The Tribune reports that “Bird was arrested after a $250 payment agreement between him and the undercover agent was reached.”
They have been charged with solicitation of a prostitute and could face jail time and fines.
